ACT member Hungarian Interchurch Aid (HiA) sent two truckloads of relief supplies on February 26, 2022 to support those displaced by the war in Ukraine.  The shipment included 28 tons of canned food, flour, sugar, oil, rice, pasta, biscuits, long-life milk, tea and hygiene products.  They will be distributed to the Beregszász and Uzhhorod centers for families forced to flee their homes due to the war. 

The ACT Europe Forum is continuing to develop plans for ACT’s broader response to support those affected by the war.  ACT has issued a statement about the situation in Ukraine, which can be read here.
